Thought the song by Spike Jones I was looking for was "Traffic jam"...

Can't find it!

I used to have it... was a cute instrumental Conga with car and truck horns in it... I'm sure it was his more later works...

Maybe I have the wrong artist? Wrong title...

Does anyone know what song I might be thinking of?

It's definitely a conga.

I'm familiar with that piece. I think I have it in my Spike Jones collection. Any way I can help?

Hi Greggy.

Yes it's called Frantic Freeway. Not one of Jones's best tracks, but Spike Jones is Spike Jones.
